Source: SBD -> Cassette Master -> Dat (48k)
Lineage: Dat (Sony R500) -> Tascam SS-R05 -> Samplitude Professional v11.2.1 -> FLAC
Taped by: Rob Eaton
Transferred by: Charlie Miller

Rob Eaton DAT, transferred by Charlie Miller. Thats a pretty good lineage. I have not compared this to previous transfers but i find it difficult to believe that there is anything better out there. Hell even the patch comes from the vault! That said the transfer has the raw sound we hear in so many from the Spring and Summer of '69 and nothing like the commercial releases discussed below.

Listed as Set 1, however this may be close to the the whole show. The other songs listed in deadlists that were part of this show were a Mama Tried and H2H before Friend of Mine and a Lovelight closer. Who knows if that is complete though.

Green Green Grass Of Home ->
Slewfoot
Sittin On Top Of The World
Morning Dew
High Time
Me And My Uncle
Casey Jones//
He Was A Friend Of Mine

Pedal-steel Jerry to open up the set. Not as nice as the Santa Rosa shows a week earlier but I always enjoy these countrified dead covers. The set shifts into more familiar territory with Sittin' and raucous and raw Dew. Then two new tunes sandwich a countrified MAMU. The Casey Jones is not a complete work at this point, not having the signature lick to open it up. This one like a few others in the summer of '69 has this Motown sounding opening. It cuts out early and the tape finishes up with He Was a Friend of Mine. I never really loved the Dead's version of this song. I tend think of this more of a Byrds song. This one does have a nice jam in the middle.

Three guest artists are listed although i could not find anything about them. Even LIA fails to mention Zephyr, Holden Caulfield and Deven Michaels in his essays about the crowded stage or acoustic sets from this period.

Zephyr was a Colorado band who were signed to ABC records. They were a heavy-ish blues-rock band featuring lead singer Candy Givens and lead guitarist Tommy Bolin, who went on to latter-day lineups of the James Gang and Deep Purple, stints in in the fusion bands of Billy Cobham ("Spectrum") and Alphonse Mouzon ("Mind Transplant") and before an overdose ended his solo career.

The other artists were the opening acts, not guests...
I believe (due to their obscurity) they were likely local Colorado bands.
The Dead were on their way to Chicago, but Colorado Springs is still kind of an out-of-the-way place for them to play (esp in '69, for an underground hippie band), so maybe they had some friends in the city.
Probably I didn't mention this in the acoustic/pedal-steel essay since this show hadn't come out when I wrote it.

No way it's the full show... I mean, the Dead wouldn't go out of their way to Colorado Springs with a bunch of no-name bands & then play for 50 minutes. (According to deadlists, the full Vault tape is 75 minutes, still short; Miller only had the first half-hour.) So it's disappointing that the rest of the set hasn't emerged; but at least there's a nice Friend of Mine and, as you say, a very countrified set.

You did mention the 7-3 show, just not the guests.

"7/3/69 starts with the pedal-steel Green Grass and Slewfoot. It's worth noting that what we have of this show has only one original song, all the rest covers - and 6/28 had only two originals! Quite a transformation since the Live/Dead days a few months earlier."

However if they were just opening acts then they didn't deserve a mention! I only mentioned this essay because there are guests in shows like Santa Rosa that are not mentioned in the crowded stage show. So i had checked both essays to see if you had the 411. You should be a little bit satisfied knowing that your essays are being used as a reference source.

must of had today's date on my brain.

They're intended as reference sources! But I am a little bit worried that as more stuff comes to light, they get more out of date...for instance here (a small case), the set has two original songs, not one...
The "crowded stage" post is limited since I intentionally left out acoustic guests for the acoustic post (6/28/69 was a debatable case), and otherwise it's also falling a bit out of date in places. But that's true of a lot of my posts. (Wish I had time to stay on top of these things, but I make additions rather randomly...)

Anyway, these other Reed's Ranch groups were definitely openers, not guests. Often the Archive setlists for Miller's uploads are more or less copied from deadbase, and the "other artists" info slips in too.

I DL'd it a few days ago, too bad that only MP3's from dead.net were available for CM to use

I only streamed it here and couldn't tell the difference. Is it appreciable in the lossless format?

the patch sources CM used were taken from the Tapers Section of dead.net

I torrented the show, it sounds good but my dog notices that it mostly came from an mp3 source - boo hoo! lol

Check out the Notes:
Thanks to Rob Eaton for lending me his Dat
The patch source comes from the dead.net taper's section mp3 stream
Thanks to Joe B. Jones for his help with pitch correcting the patch source

Yeah i saw where they came from, i just couldn't tell they were that different from the rest of the stream.

Sounds as if we should have your dog provide reviews of shows!
